I'm almost done with Kathy Shaw's Intermediate 101 Piecing class. This is a prerequisite for her future intermediate classes such as dyeing and stumpwork among other things. We learned about colors, designing blocks and block construction. I still have the last task to do (sew fabrics into a block) but it won't take long. Just have to find the muslin again (or buy more).
Triad (3 colors equidistant from each other on the color wheel)
Complimentary (opposites on the wheel)
Analogous (next to each other)
Printing images onto fabric
Different block layout ideas based on her direction
Designing a block complete with seam treatments and swatches (optional)
